Wondering how to Increase the Storage of Apple MacBook? Well, the short answer is, “buy a large SSD.” These SSDs are crazy fast but highly expensive too. Especially when it comes to buying a large storage SSD, we need to extend our budget to an extent. But instead of replacing or upgrading the SSD, many other ways can help you to extend the storage capacity of your Apple laptop. In this article, we are going to talk about the method to enhance the storing ability of your MacBook. So what the wait? Let’s get in.

Method 1: USB Flash Drives with Low Profile

Do your MacBook uses USB old fashioned ports? Yes, I am talking here about the USB Type-A ports, which are commonly found in other devices such as on your HP desktop or Lenovo laptop. If yes, then the best solution to enhance the internal storage of your device is to get a 128 or 256 GB USB stick that is very compact in size. Such as there is a USB pen drive in the market known as “SanDisk Ultra Fit” that is very slim and compact. Once it is plugged into a laptop, it almost becomes hidden, and just a small round portion is visible. Your friends and colleagues may not even notice it as it is a low profile USB drive. It is highly fast and provides up to 130 MBPS of reading speed. The drive can write at 80 MBPS with maximum potential.

If your MacBook uses USB Type-C, then you can’t use USB drives to extend the storage of your device because the USB A flash drives utilize the big slot space to fit the memory into it. Thus the tail of low profile USB A flash drive shrinks to very small it even become unnoticeable. The USB Type-C flash drive is very noticeable and can’t be left connected to the laptop. If you try to leave them plugged in when traveling, then your MacBook’s USB C port or the flash drive can be damaged. So all MacBook users with USB Type C port, please don’t use the USB drive for extending the storage. There are many other safe ways for extending storage, see the other method.

Method 2: Integrated Storage USB-C Hub

The modern MacBook Air and Pro devices are only compatible with USB Type-C devices. In order to use standard USB devices with your device, you will need a USB Hub that offers various types of USB connector points. Do you know that many USB hubs come integrated with SSD? Yes, you can freely buy them from a trusted online e-commerce site. We will recommend you the “Minix NEO” USB Type C Hub that has built-in storage in it. It offers a 240 GB solid-state drive, which is installed in it. In addition to the storage, you will get four different connectors: 1xHDMI with up to 4K resolution, 2xUSB 3.0 Type-A, 1xType-C (this can be used for powering the MacBook). The hub provides surprisingly 400 MB per second of reading and writes speed. Some might think to fix this hub to their MacBook’s lid; however, if you want to do that, then make sure to do that with neat and cleanliness. Otherwise, the look and feel of your laptop can be ruined.
